Job overview

Stoke Road Surgery is a well-established training practice (training GPs, Medical Students and Nurses) on the outskirts of Cheltenham, serving a semi-rural population of over 10,700 patients. Our supportive team includes 6 Partners, 3 Salaried GPs, 1 Retainer, 4 Practice Nurses (including a Nurse Manager), 3 Healthcare Assistants, and a Phlebotomist. Our GPs interests include cardiology, dermatology, womens health, diabetes and gastroenterology.

We are looking to appoint a doctor for 4-6 sessions, to replace a Partner who is leaving to pursue a career in medical education. We are seeking an enthusiastic, reliable GP who is keen to join our already committed and cohesive team, and who would be interested in a long term career with us.

Main duties of the job

We are offering:

  • 4-6 sessions (but please contact us anyway if you may be interested in more or fewer)
  • Salaried job or partnership (or salaried with a view to partnership)
  • Salaried GPs have 6 weeks annual leave plus 2 weeks study leave in addition to CPD built in to the working day and practice learning afternoons
  • TPP SystmOne, with Ardens, EPS, and moving to total triage via eConsult

Routine surgeries are 14 patient contacts (mix of phone, face-to-face, admin and video). We offer regular scheduled meetings for salaried GPs with a GP Partner to ensure that any problems, should they arise, can be tackled early and we can listen to any feedback. We have embraced new ways of working, including online and video consulting.

About us

We are a happy and cohesive partnership and pride ourselves on a culture of learning, high standards and mutual support. We have a daily coffee meeting and feed back learning to each other on a regular basis, in addition to our in-house training sessions. We are in a well-established network of 5 practices (Cheltenham Peripheral).

As a result, we are a happy team in which colleagues feel valued and supported.

Job description

Job responsibilities

Salaried GP/Partnership Opportunity

Clinical duties:

Each routine appointment session consists of 14 x 10min appointments. In addition there will be one visit per day. Any extra visits above this will have 3 routine appointments blocked to allow time for the extra visit to be done, as a visit is expected to take 30 minutes.

Duty doc sessions in the same ratio as the partners and other salaried GPs. Each duty doc morning session starts at 8.30am and involves helping the other morning duty doctor triage all the calls that come in before 12 noon. Usually one doctor will do phone calls and the other will see patients, but this is flexible and tends to be agreed between the two doctors as the morning progresses; sometimes one will go out and do several visits if the phone calls are quiet and the visits are busy. This is always done by discussion and agreement.

We may on occasion ask you to cover afternoon duty doctor in the case of doctors being on annual leave. As these are 12 noon until 6.30pm shifts, an adjustment may be made for time off in lieu or altered hours to account for this.

Administration/paperwork arising directly from this caseload (referrals, investigations, results) will be done in normal working time, but if we ask you to do private medical reports or non-NHS work, you will be given protected time to do so, taken out of normal surgery time.

You are invited to attend the partners meetings on Tuesday lunchtimes. Attendance is not essential except where we have significant event meetings or case meetings in which you have been involved. PLT sessions occur on an ad hoc basis in addition to this and you will be given protected time or time off pro rata for attending these.

Personal CPD / study time is allocated on a daily basis as 60 mins per day, plus one week (pro rata) of paid study leave/CPD time. This is in addition to the 6 weeks (pro rata) annual leave. The one week of paid study leave / CPD time may be used however the GP feels most appropriate, eg on courses, private study, or time in lieu for attending study events outside of normal working hours.

You may have the opportunity to do extra locum sessions on your non-working days and these will be remunerated separately. If you wish to do locum sessions elsewhere or for other providers, these must be done on days when you are not scheduled to work one of your usual sessions at Stoke Road Surgery, and may not be done on annual leave days or study leave days without prior agreement from the partners.

We will be as flexible as we can regarding the setup of the appointments within the surgeries and this may be agreed before you start, and reviewed periodically at your request. We will consider any request for flexible working within the constraints for the building and service provision.
